The 8bit-collective is a community website dedicated to the sharing of chiptune music. Chiptune musicians repurpose legacy computer hardware, video game consoles and other toys in order to compose original music. Since the site launched in 2005, interest in modern chip music has exploded.
In 2011, 8 Bit Collective went down, leaving a significant hole in the history of chiptune and 8-bit music. This is a fan compilation of many of the highest rated music pieces from the old site.
